Robert Burns Scottish Party

Posted by

This Saturday, January 30, at the Landfall Clubhouse is the annual Scottish dinner in honor of Robert Burns. The Scottish author, poet, and writer was born January 25, 1759, and every year on his birthday there are dinner celebrations all over the world. He is considered the pioneer of the Romantic Movement and was a major source of inspiration for the founders of liberalism and socialism. Everyone is familiar with at least one of his poems, “Auld Lang Syne,” which we now hear every New Year’s Eve at midnight. Scotland regards Robert Burns as one of the greatest Scots ever.

The dinner gatherings in honor of his birthday are often black tie optional and Scottish attire optional. The dinner includes Scottish and Celtic music, readings of his poems, and often the acting out of his poems by performers in costume. Music at the event will be provided by The Port City Pipes and Drums, a local bagpipe band, who will play Scottish music from the 18th century. Come join your fellow Scots and celebrate with food, drinks, poetry, music, dancing, toasts, prizes and a silent auction.

The price of tickets are $50 a person for Scottish Society members and $59 for non members. All proceeds will go to the Scottish Society of Wilmington. To make your reservations call the Landfall Clubhouse receptionist at 256-8411.
